    the function that the facility is to serve

    The first step in the design process is to define the function that the facility is to serve. The level of service required to fulfill this function for the anticipated volume and composition of traffic provides a rational and cost effective basis for the selection of design speed and geometric criteria within the range of values available to the designer (for the specified functional classification). The use of functional classification as a design type should appropriately integrate the highway planning and design process. (p. 17)

    The text is about different kinds of roads and streets.

    Hi,
    "Facility" in the text above means "places" or "equipments and services"?

    Thank you

    The facility is the physical object that you are designing, for example, a roundabout, an overpass, etc.
